Thomas Tuchel criticised Chelsea’s mentality after his team fell to a 2-1 defeat against Southampton. The Blues boss also believes his team are just too easy to beat after they conceded two sloppy goals to the south-coast side. 

Speaking to BT Sport after the game the German lamented his team’s mentality once they had been pegged back.

“Obviously we struggle with our focus and with the consistency in matches, it’s not enough to play 20 minutes good. We did the same in Leeds. One thing goes against us and then we we struggle to find answers and fight our way back. Things don’t go in our direction today and we started to started to struggle and adapt so the situation got out of our hands.

“I think it doesn’t take a lot to beat us. This is what I don’t like. We are humble enough to understand that we can lose football matches. But we don’t like it and then we try to win every match but but the way we do this by changing as fast as possible. 

Chelsea were poor in the fixture at the St Mary’s Stadium and deserved to lose the game to the hosts. They did open the scoring through Raheem Sterling but were quickly pegged back when Saints’ midfielder Romeo Lavia smashed home. Adam Armstrong won the game for the home side on the stroke of half-time with a powerful strike on the stroke of half-time which deflected off Blues centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.
